Do as little work as possible, and that unwillingly, for it is better to receive a slight reprimand than to perform an arduous task.
Anne's Snack Shack is a waste of time.
I think the "insular orientation" of AmericasMart and Peachtree Center is a big factor contributing to downtown's desolation, as those buildings dominate central and significant blocks, and they're just extraordinarily unpleasant and boring to be around from the street.

I've lived in Atlanta for 6 years and have never had a car, or even a driver's license. Or a gym membership. Not driving is certainly an "alternative lifestyle", but I would venture that it is probably a better lifestyle than relying entirely on your car, even in Atlanta.
Enough with the parks. Atlanta is full of trees and parks and butterflies. What Downtown needs is more density. Mixed residential and commercial buildings with access to public transit make a downtown, not parks on every corner.
